Ash is drooling over his favourite guitar - the one he can't afford - when he meets Charlie Novak. One jam session later and Charlie convinces Ash to play in his band. But it'll never work. Bands never do.

Erin is wandering down a corridor at school - overthinking things as usual - when she runs into Charlie. Literally. The guy is a fruit loop with his weird hair and hyperactive rantings. When Charlie invites her to be the band's keyboard player, Erin can't get a word in to say no. She's a classical pianist. It'll never work.

But maybe this time things will be different. Maybe blues music is just what Ash and Erin need.

"One of the best young adult novels I've read this year . . . deftly explores the tensions between youth and authority, and the nature of friendship, grief and small-town prejudice. Oswald's prose is animated by vivid characterization, the self-mocking humor typical of teens and by an unexpected tragedy that (unusually for YA fiction) isn't treated gratuitously." --Weekend Australian on Getting Air
